Denmark captain, Simon Kjaer was completely out of it when Christian Eriksen’s collapse at Euro 2020, Finland goalkeeper, Lukas Hradecky has said. Lukas recently revealed that he hopes the bad incident would force UEFA protocol change.
According to him, it is clear that there must be a clearly defined protocol on what to do in such situations because that would be very helpful to everyone involved.
He added that football is about people, therefore UEFA must work towards making life easier for the players.
His words, “Everyone saw, for example, that Simon Kjaer was totally out of it and still completely shocked,”
“There must be a clearly defined protocol on what to do in such incidents.”
“That would be very helpful to everyone involved. It must not be the case that traumatised players have to think about what should happen. Football is about people, as this case has once again clearly shown. They are the most important. So we need a clear rule that puts the human and not the commercial perspective in the foreground.”
“It was just terrible. The scene itself looked very strange. Despite my distance from what was happening, I quickly realised that it was something serious.”
“Christian was completely gone. You are simply not prepared for it and don’t know what to do in such a situation.”
“So I say hats off to Simon Kjaer and Kasper Schmeichel in particular, but also to all the other Danish players, for what they did in those moments.”
